Re-reading the Star Trek Voyager Dark Matter books. Trying to find something to read. I read for about 2 hours everyday. Need a good long sci-fi/fantasy book soon...

Why don't you try StarWar novels? I'm currently reading lots of them (just started on "Dark Nest 1: The Joiner King" by Troy Denning).

The Thrawn arc by Timothy Zahn makes for a good read - in chronological order:
The "Republic Commando" arc by Karen Traviss is also good:

Yes It was.

Currently reading, Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards


Well, then that's where I know it from, I saw the movie about two weeks ago.

I did movie set security on The Memory Keeper's Daughter, I own the book but still have not read it yet.

Another recommendation for the Thrawn Trilogy and Hand of Thrawn Duology (Y) Haven't read the others but if they're by Timothy Zahn, they're likely to be good.

"The Lullaby" by Chuck Palahniuk

<<snip>>


I read that a few months ago, wish they'd make it into a movie, or at least a mini series, however, because "Choke" did so bad at the box office, I really don't see either happening.

Hand of Thrawn Duology


That would still be a trilogy, because now they consider two or more books and/or movies a trilogy.

Chris Ryan: Strikes Back


If it was Chris Ryan who wrote "The One that Got Away", then I love his books.

The New Cold War - Edward Lucas
The Communist Manifesto - Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels
Programming a Multiplayer FPS in Direct X - Vaughan Young

Who, exactly, is they?
I've never heard of that, and I think you just made it up.
